Glowberry, creator of the popular kids’ series BRAVE BUNNIES, and Big Picture Licensing (BPL), its exclusive licensing agent, have announced the signing of Penguin Random House as a strategic multi-territory licensee, joining DeA Planeta Libri as publishing partners.

A publishing team and series creators are already at work on the first series of books about the journey and adventures of the Brave Bunnies and their friends.

The deal was made with Ned Hartley, Commissioning Editor, Ladybird, who says: “We fell in love with BRAVE BUNNIES as soon as we saw it, and we knew that it would work brilliantly as publishing. We’re sure that these books are going to hop off the shelves!”
